This is a custom card being designed for my Strike North Campaign Scenario which I will be GMing during the upcoming MaizeCon in Waterloo, IA happening in October 2018. There are plenty of card designs already out there by such esteemed individuals as Sharpe, Thor711 and ObstbfEgon. I'm using them as starting points for my own versions. Some have been left entirely intact and others I have modified to my own purposes.
Looking for feedback. What do you think? Is it balanced in terms of cost? Any concerns or questions?
Once I have enough comments / feedback giving approval I will produce the unit card and post it here.
Norwegian Ski Troops
Year available: 1940
Close Assault 4 - This unit has an attack value of 4 against vehicles in its’ hex. This attack ignores cover.
Mountaineering - This unit gets +1 on movement rolls.
Ski Capable - In your movement phase, this unit gets +1 speed if the first hex it enters is a snow hex. A successful movement roll is required. (SA reworded)
Often used as flank protection or as a rear guard force, these troops were better adapted to the winter conditions encountered by Allied forces in April 1940.
In my mind a 3 point infantry is a "plain jane" "Vanilla" soldier like the Mauser or SMLE. This guy has a 7/5 attack and the two positive SA's, I think it works pretty well, the lesser attack is exchanged for the positive SA's for 3 points.
When you go home, tell them of us and say, For your tomorrows these gave their today. ~J.M. Edmonds
SgtFury, love your custom cards. Is there a custom card program you use to create the cards or are you using Photoshop or some other over the counter software package? Thank you!
Several years ago I came across blank versions of the original AAM cards which you could use to fill in your own stats. I downloaded the Allied, Axis and Support cards. Then I created templates for each one. In other words, I recreated the font styles and sizes for each part of the unit card. I also created a national roundlet template so that I could drop in whatever insignia I needed whether it was American, British, German, Russian, etc. For unit photos I simply search the internet for pictures of whatever soldier or vehicle type I'm trying to create. I use Adobe Photoshop. This program allows me to create separate layers for each text and photo. Once you have a template made up it's very easy to just open a file, adjust the stats, save and print. I always make sure to save the version with all the layers so that I can go back and change one thing without having to start over.
